View source: R/EM.starting.point.R

This function should be invisible to most users, and is part of our the fitting routine using the EM algorithm. Our maximum likelihood procedure uses an iterative algorithm called Expectation-Maximization. This requires a starting point, chosen at random. EM.starting point randomly assigns this starting point.

1 | ```
EM.starting.point(d, trait = "binary")
``` |

`d` |
The dataframe that needs to be initialized |

`trait` |
Can be either “binary” or ”eQTL” |

Returns the input data frame with reasonable random starting values.
